Conal Platt: Former Lincoln City winger joins Gainsborough

Conal Platt

Gainsborough Trinity have signed winger Conal Platt following his departure from Lincoln City by mutual consent.

Platt was sidelined for almost a year after breaking his leg in a practice match in February 2012 and played only once for the Imps this season.

Trinity manager Steve Housham told BBC Radio Lincolnshire: "Conal will give options not just to our forward line but in the way we set up.

"He has experience which we need at this stage of the season."

Platt joined Lincoln on loan from Cambridge United in November 2011 before making the move permanent two months later.

The 26-year-old scored three goals in 17 matches before suffering his injury.
